What’s hiding beneath?

July 15, 2018

Statism has a thin, shiny scale of pretty-looking ethics hiding the evil beneath. It’s sort of like nail polish on an infected, fungal fingernail.

Some statism shows its concern for the less fortunate while hiding its approval of theft. Other statism shows the world its concern for “family values” while hiding its family-destroying policies from casual view. And, the ethics don’t hide just one evil, but a huge library of evils. All excused by the thin superficial layer of goodness.

The nice-looking ethics are good, but they stop short. They don’t go far enough and don’t redeem the evil that exists right beside them. It doesn’t make you a good person to give the shirt off your back to one person while raping and murdering another.

All the aggression and theft is just below the surface, while the pretty, distracting scale of ethics hides it from view. But it only hides the corruption and evil from those who don’t want to look.

The ethics embraced by any form of statism are only surface deep, used for less than ethical purposes, but the evil goes all the way to the core.

Delusions of “authority”

July 14, 2018

You know what strikes me as funny, pathetic, and arrogant… all at the same time?

Governments believing they can (or should!) impose “laws” which apply to people in outer space, on asteroids, and on other planets.

That’s some serious delusions of grandeur, right there.

Childish, adult, or mature?

July 13, 2018

I recently heard someone who was making a distinction between the “childish approach” of the political “left” and the “adult approach” of the political “right”. I believe he missed something important. He was so focused on “right” and “left” he forgot to consider right and wrong.

The childish approach: “That’s not fair! It’s hard. It’s not fun. I don’t want to do that! I just want to do stuff that I like.

His amoral “adult” approach: “This will hurt right now, but we need to do it anyway for a better long-term result.

The ethical mature approach (which he ignored because it is neither “right” nor “left”):

Don’t do the wrong thing, no matter your justification or excuses. The right way might not feel as good. It might not bring the results you want as fast as some other ways. But if you can’t get what you want or believe you need without archating, then you’re just going to have to live with it. Unless you want to be a monster. You never have the right to archate.

As you can see, many times there are more than two choices (and there may even be more than three). Don’t let people fool you into missing the best choice by trying to force you to choose between two contrived choices they prefer you consider.

Individuals and differences

July 12, 2018

Everyone is an individual. (Duh)

There are differences between individuals. These differences are real.

Some of those differences are affected by things which have been used historically to limit or deny natural human rights to some people. This is wrong.

Then there are differences which aren’t as real. Even some totally imaginary things have been used as excuses to limit or deny natural human rights of some people. Things like nationality or “citizenship”, for example.

Rights don’t differ among individuals. Not based on any criteria. Not for any reason. No matter how you feel about it.

Gun safety essential to gun rights

July 11, 2018

(My Eastern New Mexico News column for July 11, 2018)

Gun rights, like all natural human rights, are a foundation of a functional society. And every right comes with an equally important responsibility. You must handle and use your gun so that you don’t harm anyone who doesn’t deserve to be harmed.

Gun safety is more than important; it is essential…read the rest

Cops– Abusing your bosses

July 10, 2018

The fact of the matter is, if you are a cop, the lowliest crackwhore is your moral superior… and your boss.

And if cops don’t like that they can always quit and get an honest job.

“Be realistic” = be a jerk

July 10, 2018

If someone truly believes it is “Utopian” to expect human interactions to be voluntary, how would you like being one of their family members, or a neighbor?

Do you think they’d be a good cow-orker or employee? (Be careful while orking cows!) Could you trust them at all if you weren’t holding them at gunpoint?

Are they really that barbaric, or are they talking through their hat; not understanding the concepts they feel the need to preach at you about? Perhaps they are just saying what they feel needs to be said to justify archation? I suspect it’s that last one, since they are apparently still alive and able to speak, so they must be choosing voluntary interactions the vast majority of the time.

Dear Badgescum…

July 9, 2018

How disgusting! What other molesters does the letter writer appreciate for their crimes?

If you fear “traffic stops”, stop molesting and robbing drivers.

If you don’t want to be filmed “doing your job”, get a job that doesn’t come with the obligation of letting your bosses see exactly what you are doing every single second you are on my clock, collecting a paycheck funded by money stolen from me and others who neither want nor need you.

The mainstream media can’t crucify a character which doesn’t exist.

Everyone gets tired at work. Everyone feels misunderstood. I promise you no one misunderstands you more than those deluded people who support you in spite of what you do.

So, you hurt when your fellow molesters die. If cops die, it isn’t just because they are guilty of wearing a uniform and a badge– it is because of the crimes committed by the gang they are announcing their membership in. A gang they would be kicked out of if they refused to commit the same crimes. You are guilty of the same things the dead armed government employees were guilty of. You can’t show up for your “job” without violating life, liberty, and property.

Yes, you are flesh and bone like me. And so is the rapist, the mugger, the serial murderer, and other people who make the decision to violate others. So?

The only thing you serve and protect are the politicians who give you the power and excuses to molest and steal, and the Blue Line Gang.

I don’t want you or need you. Go away. Forever. Find an HONEST job and stop being a hired gun for the State. It’s a mistake you could correct in less than a second, if you have a gram of principles and ethics.

It should HURT to be this much of a copsucker.

America’s Sharia Law

July 9, 2018

 

(Updated for reposting– originally posted 1/19/2011)

One of the reasons I hear coming from “conservatives” for invading and occupying Islamic countries is so “they” won’t take over America and force Sharia “law” on “us”. You know, kind of an extension of the “fight them there so we don’t have to fight them here” excuse.

True, have no wish to live under such a brutal and primitive, and painfully stupid, system. But doesn’t that mean we should deal with the mote in our own eye and get rid of our own version of Sharia “law” too? Otherwise we are just being hypocritical. Again.

Sharia law is no more obscene than most of the counterfeit laws in America. Kidnapping and murdering people over plants? Or chemicals? Or because they refuse to facilitate their own muggings? “Laws” based on what people claim their god wants?

If we refuse to put up with being ruled by Sharia “law”, why don’t we refuse the US equivalent and refuse to tolerate drug laws, gun lawssex lawstax laws, seatbelt laws, property codes, obscenity laws… and the list goes on almost infinitely to embrace any and all “laws”, based on a religion, which attempt to control or regulate anything other than actual aggression or theft.

Sorry, but if your god approves of the War on Politically Incorrect Drugs, or government sanctioned (or prohibited) marriage, or 99%+ of the rest of the things that “The Law” concerns itself with, your god is a monster. And if you continue to follow your god (whatever name you call him) in spite of his monstrosity, then you are no better. And if you think it is a good idea to impose “laws” like this, and enforce them against your neighbors who may not share your religion, you should be happy with Sharia “law”. As for me, I’ll take liberty and respect yours as well.
